When will my order arrive?



A simple, one-stop-shop programme, with more manageable 800-calorie fasting days

Includes an exciting new evidence-based approach called Time Restricted Eating (TRE), which can be used in tandem with the Fast 800 to accelerate results.

Includes more than 50 calorie-counted, Mediterranean-style recipes by Dr Clare Bailey, wife of Michael Mosley and the author of the bestselling 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet Recipe Book.

Working on his personal rationale that he always tries the things he recommends, Michael puts on nearly 10% of his body weight for the book - about 14lb - and then test-drives the Fast 800, with stunning results.

3 million copies sold internationally across the three existing titles (rights sold in more than 40 territories worldwide).

From late Feb 2019 through to end of March, Michael will be on a speaking tour of the UK, discussing the book and the science that lies behind it.

Review quote

"This new book is full of fascinating information and is incredibly readable. I picked it up in something of a post-Christmas haze and couldn't put it down." Dr Andrew Bailey, Fellow of the Royal College of General Practioners

"An important, easy to follow book which is full of surprising and effective weight loss tips. It should change a lot of lives for the better." Professor Desiree Silva, University of Western Australia

"Dr Mosley, one of the world's leading writers covering nutrition and health, does it again with a very informative and entertaining book. " Dr Valter Longo, Director of the University of Southern California Longevity Institute

"This diet changed my life. I lost 16kg (35lbs) in the first 8 weeks and I've lost another 6kg (13lbs) since. I was a borderline diabetic but I'm not anymore, in fact I'm healthier than I've ever been." Denise Bach, aged 51

"I lost 40lb and I'm now a size 10. I feel so much better. This approach is now part of my daily life." Penni Cuthbert, aged 33

"Not so much a diet as a new way of living. I've followed Michael's advice ever since my third bout of cancer and I have not looked back" Patrick McIntosh, who at the age of 58 became the first man to walk to the South Pole after surviving surgery for bowel, skin and prostate cancer.
